Former NBA rebounding king Dennis Rodman is making headlines once again. This time “The Worm” is getting pub for his emotional and honest speech during his induction in the Basketball Hall of Fame on Friday night.
See for yourself and keep the tissues nearby when he starts talking about being a better father.
Rodman won five NBA championships, two with the Detroit Pistons and three with the Chicago Bulls, during his 15-year NBA career. The popular athlete was often times criticized for his shenanigans of the court, but acclaimed for his effort and determination on it. He left the game with the highest career rebounding average (13.1 rpg) in 911 games. Rodman also tallied five of the highest eight single-season rebounding averages, including the top two of all-time.
No matter the opinion one has of Rodman’s lifestyle and mistakes along the way, his dynamic skills around the rim are undoubtedly what Rodman will be remembered for most. Which is possibly his greatest achievement of all.
